I did a post a while ago about my management system. Click here to check it out.
I left school on Friday primed for vacation and a little evening with work friends. Of course, I left a whole bunch of things behind. I went in this morning to pick up some stuff and ended up working for 2 1/2 hours in my classroom. I was dedicated to doing the clutter free thing, but just could not get myself to follow through at the end of the day. I am so tapped out at 3:00 that I just clean up a bit and go home. It worked to go in early, but that is so not happening on a regular basis! It was nice just to go in and work. I took a picture of all the stuff I purged, but did not bring my cord home to download the pics. Picture three copy paper boxes full, a medium size garbage can and an overflowing recycling bin!
I started going through a cupboard and realized that, not only had I not really used the cupboard since the beginning of hte year, but I have stacks of papers in there. Sadly, there was some student work from last year that was squirrelled away and class sets of copies. Lots of recycling! I hate throwing things away, but I feel like you have to balance conservtion with sanity sometimes.
On a personal note, it is winter break week and I am busily preparing to host a baby shower for my SIL. Somehow I have to fit 25 people in my little hosue and make it appear as if I am always ready to host a crowd. I have an endless bathroom project underway and am making my storage room/craft room/office usuable by human beings.
Oh, I also have a BIG event tomorrow afternoon...and report cards go home in a week. No pressure of anything!!!
Well, off to bed - I hit zombie mode about 2 hours ago!
